I love to step back in time and learn about the history and the people who had a part in developing an area. The house is amazing with period pieces on display, beautiful woodwork and the staircase is beautiful. And the Views are amazing! Well worth the trip up the hill.

This 1914 mansion was worth the drive and the time. Our guided-tour docent was knowledgeable and interesting shedding a lot of light on the family, the times, and the house features. Thank you for bringing this Portland era to life!

If you like visiting old mansions, as we do, you'll enjoy the Pittock Mansion. They are doing some construction work on the property, but there's still plenty to see. Like many such homes, this mansion had fallen into disrepair at some point and was restored to its former glory. It has some lovely views overlooking Portland and some pleasant gardens for wandering. Our only issue was that we were using mass transit, and getting the bus to and from is a bit tricky. Our driver didn't announce the stop, so my husband had to ask him (fortunately it came up just a minute or two later). On the way back, the bus nearly zipped on by past the stop, and the driver seemed annoyed that we were waiting there. If you're driving, no problem, because there's good parking right near the mansion.

We enjoyed the mansion, but like many reviewers stated - go for the view. It's gorgeous and we took a little hike through the trees to get there. I definitely suggest that you use a gps as it is actually in a "normal" neighborhood and was a little difficult to find, but it's well worth it!

Take the time to see this place! Such facinating innovations and the memories - seeing so many household items and accessories from my past.
